The national debate around education usually focuses on children. But what happens when those children grow up and try to make their way into the world? WAMU 88.5's new five-part series, Yesterday's Dropouts, takes a look at the struggles adults face long after they leave school without a diploma. This series includes interviews with Academy of Hope's community and adult learners.
Tune in 4/15 through 4/19 at 6:50am and 8:50am. Each report will also be re-broadcast on consecutive Fridays on Metro Connection at 1pm and Saturdays at 7am.
